Welcome to Day 7 of the series, FIND your FIT! (To return to the beginning, click here.)
Let’s continue discussing types of scrapbooking by looking at the traditional style.
What is it?
Traditional scrapbooking is an approach to memory keeping that uses adhesive to attach printed photos to a cardstock or patterned paper background. Most traditional pages include photos, a title, and supporting journaling. They can also include layers, ephemera/memorabilia, embellishments, and techniques like stamping or embossing.
Why it may be a good fit for you:
- Hands-on and tactile. Unlike digital scrapbooking, you get to touch the papers, ribbons, buttons, etc.
- Doesn’t have as much of a learning curve to learn. Digital requires computer skills and photo-editing software.
- You can see and feel the texture and layers, unlike a printed digital page.
- Handwritten journaling. All you need is a pen.
